      From Mickey Marcella ('54) of VA - 10/14/12:

Thanks for mentioning my birthday, Carol.  Thanks for sending the newsletter for NNHS.  We all appreciate it! 

Mickey Marcella 

   Thank you, Mickey! I'm totally embarrassed, though, as the last week's worth of Newsletters have been filled to overflowing with heinous bloopers which I've had to keep correcting again and again.  The most glaring was that I had somehow omitted your birthday for the first four days it was to have run. I'm all in favor of revisionist history if it benefits me, though, so I amended them all as soon as I recognized it. 
  
Now no one will ever know, right?


    From Joe Madagan ('57) of FL - 10/14/12 - "Carry me back to old Virginny":

Hi, Carol:

Hope you and
        Paul (Harty - Bardolph HS, IL - '61 - of NC) had a good time at the Reunion, and visiting the Commonwealth.

Noticed that you are imbedding the link to the Newsletter page on your website in your newsletters to your subscribers in the "TYPHOON Nation" again, and glad you were able to overcome some of the issues with your Internet Service Provider.

TYPHOON Regards,
Joe Madagan ('57) of FL

    Well, there you are, Adonis!   I thought you had R-U-N-N-O-F-T!

  Actually, I hope you and    Eva (Ellis Madagan - '61 - of FL) DID R-U-N-N-O-F-T to the Sacred Soil for your 55-Year Reunion last week, and that y'all had as much fun as Paul and I did at '62's 50-Year Reunion!

    I did return to including Newsletter links in the announcements after giving everyone a few weeks to either "whitelist" my addy, or lift the heaviest restrictions from their security settings so that my mail would actually reach them.  I still have not yet heard from some of those who were our most frequent contributors prior to my computer difficulties back in April when we stopped production for four months.  Hey, you don't suppose that THEY done R-U-N-N-O-F-T, do you??  

   Thanks, Major Madagan - so good to hear from you again!


       From Bill Lee (Warwick HS - '54) of NC - 10/14/12 - " Navy birthday observance":


Thank you - again this year - for acknowledging the Navy's birthday. Attached is what I shared with others of that day as my small contribution to honoring the naval service.

   Thanks so much, Mark! That's a great looking site!  I've added it to  the bottom of TYPHOONMART.


    From Adrian Whitcomb ('67) of VA - 10/13/12 - "Some YouTube Videos":

Below are direct links to some videos that I recently put on YouTube. You can view more, including many that I have made at Fort Monroe and related activities by going to my webpages@yahoo.com channel at http://www.youtube.com/user/webpages2020?feature=watch

Here's a contra dance video that I made at the Watermen's Museum, Yorktown on September 29, 2012: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ljhhg4ODOxk  We had a great time dancing on the waterfront. As we danced we observed a fireworks display along the Gloucester County York River waterfront.

First glance might make you think this is an UFO, but it's real, not from out of this world, and was part of NASA Langley's 95th Anniversary open house: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sRiRVx7HXZk&feature=plcp

Remember the scene in "It's a Wonderful Life" in which George tells Mary that he will lasso the moon for her. Here is an original song by Justin D. Clements that is based on that scene: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8gzyIiF0mMQ&feature=plcp

A good friend posted this on Face Book.......I'm borrowing and sharing with you.
Hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

~AUTUMN NIGHT~

SOFTLY THE WIND BLOWS
THE RAINBOW LEAVES
OFF THE TREES
...
INTO THE POND
THAT WHIRLS SO GENTLE
BEFORE THE LEAVES ARE FORCED
TO FLOAT ON
WHILE THE CLOUDS APART
AND THE SUN GOES DOWN
LEAVING THE LEAVES
STILL BLOWING AROUND
OFF THEIRTREES
WHICH NOW GOES BARE
WHILE THE NIGHT COMES IN
BRINGING A SLIGHT CHILL
TO THE AIR
AS I SIT OUTSIDE
IN MY AUTUMN NIGHT
JUST SIPPING MY TEA
AND HOLDING MY BLANKET TIGHT
WHILE FALLING A SLEEP
IN THE COOL BREEZE
OF MY AUTUMN NIGHT
 

 BRUCE MARTONE
 
 Joyce Cahoon

   Thanks so much, Joyce - I do like it!

Father,
God bless all my friends in whatever it is that You know they may be needing this day! And may their life be full of your peace, prosperity and power as he/she seeks to have a closer relationship with you. Amen.

I was looking for a really creamy macaroni and cheese recipe and this is it! I changed the recipe a bit by omitting the eggs (the original recipe calls for three), and by boiling the macaroni for six minutes instead of seven, so it doesn't get mushy while cooking in the Crockpot. I also shortened the cooking time from three to two-and-a-half hours. Perfection!"

FINALLY:
From www.ajokeaday.com - 10/14/12:

 
HOW TO KEEP A HEALTHY LEVEL OF INSANITY AND DRIVE OTHER PEOPLE INSANE
Submitted by Jonalee Echols from Bullard Texas.

1. Page yourself over the intercom. Don't disguise your voice.

2. Find out where your boss shops and buy exactly the same outfits. Always wear them one day after your boss does. This is especially effective if your boss is the opposite gender.

3. Put mosquito netting around your cubicle.

4. Every time someone asks you to do something, ask if they want fries with that.

5. Put your garbage can on your desk and label it "IN."

6. When driving colleagues around, insist on keeping your car's windshield wipers running during all weather conditions to keep 'em tuned up.

7. Reply to everything someone says with, "That's what you think."

8. Highlight irrelevant information in scientific papers, then cc them to your boss.

9. Finish all your sentences with "in accordance with the prophecy."

10. At lunchtime, sit in your parked car and point a hair dryer at passing cars to see if they slow down.

11. Specify that your drive-thru order is "to go."

12. Go to a poetry recital and ask why the poems don't rhyme.


DATES TO REMEMBER:

Thursday, November 1, 2012 - The NNHS Class of 1955 holds Lunch Bunch gatherings on the first Thursday of every month at Steve & John's Steak House on Jefferson Avenue just above Denbigh Boulevard in Newport News at 11:00 AM.

Blinded by the Light

Written and recorded by Bruce Springsteen, 1973
(b. 23 Sept 1949)

Recorded by
Manfred Mann's Earth Band, 1976
(b. 21 Oct 1940
 

Blinded by the light,
revved up like a deuce,
another runner in the night
Blinded by the light,
revved up like a deuce,
another runner in the night
Blinded by the light,
revved up like a deuce,
another runner in the night
Madman drummers bummers,
Indians in the summer with a teenage diplomat
In the dumps with the mumps as the adolescent pumps his way into his hat
With a boulder on my shoulder, feelin' kinda older,
I tripped the merry-go-round
With this very unpleasin', sneezin' and wheezin,
the calliope crashed to the ground
The calliope crashed to the ground
But she was...
Blinded by the light,
revved up like a deuce,
runner in the night
Blinded by the light,
revved up like a deuce,
another runner in the night
Blinded by the light,
revved up like a deuce,
another runner in the night
Blinded by the light,
revved up like a deuce,
another runner in the night
Some silicone sister with a manager mister told me I go what it takes
She said "I'll turn you on sonny to something strong,
play the song with the funky break"
And go-cart Mozart was checkin' out the weather chart to see if it was safe outside
And little Early-Pearly came by in his curly-wurly and asked me if I needed a ride
Asked me if I needed a ride
But she was...
Blinded by the light,
revved up like a deuce,
another runner in the night
Blinded by the light
She got down but she never got tired
She's gonna make it through the night
She's gonna make it through the night
But mama, that's where the fun is
But mama, that's where the fun is
Mama always told me not to look into the eye's of the sun
But mama, that's where the fun is
Some brimstone baritone anticyclone rolling stone preacher from the east
Says, "Dethrone the dictaphone, hit it in it's funny bone,
that's where they expect it least"
And some new-mown chaperone was standin' in the corner,
watching the young girls dance
And some fresh-sown moonstone was messin' with his frozen zone, reminding him of romance
The calliope crashed to the ground
But she was...
Blinded by the light,
revved up like a deuce,
another runner in the night
Blinded by the light,
revved up like a deuce,
another runner in the night
Blinded by the light,
revved up like a deuce,

Blinded by the light,

With a boulder on my shoulder, feelin' kinda older,
I tripped the merry-go-round
With this very unpleasin', sneezin' and wheezin,
the calliope crashed to the ground
Now Scott with a slingshot finally found a tender spot and throws his lover in the sand
And some bloodshot forget-me-not said daddy's within earshot save the buckshot, turn up the band
Some silicone sister with a manager mister told me I go what it takes
She said "I'll turn you on sonny to something strong"
